These four Sequoiadendron giganteum were found by chance when visiting Sturminster Newton to see the Giant Redwood at St. Mary's church. Two of these are fairly close together, which is a shame but the largest is set apart with plenty of room. The cemetery can be found along the A357 near the bridge over the River Stour.
